Located in the heart of Maputo Bay, with spectacular views of the sea and with Catembe smiling on the other shore, Zambi offers the best leisure space, within the framework of the architecture created by Pancho Guedes. Just as Guedes turned lines into wonderfully sculptural buildings, Zambi also transforms the best ingredients into international-flavoured delicacies without ever losing sight of the Afro-Luso origins.
Representing the adventures across the seven seas, the restaurant serves Sushi with Latinity notes, the best seafood from the Atlantic to the Indian Ocean and the excellent meat of the African plains.
Zambi believes that no dish can be better than its ingredients, and that the best ingredients are usually local.
